The darlings of the JavaScript world

Remember when JavaScript was dubbed the world’s most misunderstood programming language? Suffice it to say that this is no longer the case.

The number of libraries and frameworks could easily overwhelm you so let’s stick to the most popular ones: Angular, React and Vue.js. This JAX Magazine issue wouldn’t be complete without Node.js, a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine.
